Luck chain letter.  Ancient Prayer.   "...the one eternal God ..."  "Please do not break this prayer chain."   US, 1906.
Endless Prayer Chain
Oh, Lord Jesus Christ, we implore Thee, the one eternal God to have mercy on all mankind. Keep us from sin by thy precious blood and take us live with thee eternally.  Amen.
This prayer was sent by bishop Lawrence recommending it to be written nine times and sent to as many persons.  He who will not send it will be afflicted with some misfortune. He who will write this prayer and distribute it to nine persons commencing the day it is received, will on the ninth day, receive a blessing.
Please do not break this prayer chain.
